To be honest, even if Apple Maps used the same data as Google’s, I wouldn’t use it right now.
How is showing almost all road sizes in the same colour (white) a good idea? Why is peppering the map with big circular points of interest that give a local sandwich shop the same visual priority as a tube station a good idea?
I find that Apple Maps alternately fills the screen with lots of not very important information and (in more rural areas) shows barely anything, omitting important details until I zoom in so far that I can no longer see the big picture.
